Treats for my sweetie
I've been feeling a little under the weather this week, so I haven't been doing much of anything. I did manage, however, to make a few Valentine's Day treats for my hubby. He requested that I bake him up a batch of chocolate-dipped heart cookies. It's one of the first recipes I tried when I was learning how to bake. Nowadays, I try to bake mostly from scratch, but these cookies are made with refrigerated cookie dough. Admittedly, it's pretty great not to have to make a super mess in the kitchen and use pre-made dough and cake mix once and a while. These would be a great kitchen activity for kids, as well.
Of course, I couldn't resist trying a new brownie recipe for V-Day. I've seen the Bon Appetite recipe for Browned Butter Brownies with Walnuts floating around the food blogoshere, and they looked absolutely divine. So I baked up my own batch, and they turned out amazing, as promised. I think it's my new favorite brownie recipe -- and surprisingly easy!
Do you have a favorite treat you like to make for your sweetheart?
